Should template show the date added?
No idea about it, did you contact support?
Yes I did, that is why I learn some cleaning up is going on.
That's good to know, because I found very poor templates. Mode "spring cleaning" on!
On the other hand, I hope that they will not delete all templates and only keep the ones related to IT, that will be a lost for this community.
My improvement proposal will be: Group the templates by folders by industry, easy to find when we will be looking for something more specific.
I am personally not aware of this, but if they are looking to clean up templates, I would make the following recommendations to the site admins:
1. Do not purge the templates. Archive them, instead, to a low-traffic server. This way these templates are still available.
2. The criteria for purging should include overall rating as a parameter only. Industry, number of downloads, number of ratings are all misleading in the scenario of niche processes or industries.
3. Maintain a special page that announces which templates are queued up for purging in the following month. This will allow members to at least obtain a last-minute copy for their own storage .
I agree with Mayte, most of the Construction related templates were extremely juvenile in structure. I am surprised Vincent was even looking in those files!
I have some constructive criticism and a suggestion. We all know that a Project Management Plan is required for every Project- and most of us generate these in-depth docs- so why do we not have a "sanitized' version of an actual Plan (with headings for all the subsidiary plans) in our PM.Com library???
Why don;t w have cleaned up versions of the subsidiary plans in there as templates?
Why don't we have access to sanitized versions of "lessons learned"?
This web site could be so much more useful than in this current form.
Karan, I agree with your assessment of following the ISO (9014?) guidance for Doc Controls----However, I wish I had seen something worth saving there....
From the trenches...
Everyone, we know some of the templates are woefully inadequate, especially with regard to construction. Can SME's in the building and construction industry please help out the community here by creating templates, articles and discussions about this very important industry? We all know the problem. Let's find a solution.
If there isn't a good template related to construction, anyone putting their hand up to create one?
maybe updating it
